Everything - and apparently, EVERYONE - with which Lindsay Lohan gets herself involved turns to TROUBLE!
Even the folks administering her punishment!
That's right, Judges Marsha Revel and Elden Fox have apparently been disciplined by the California Commission on Judicial Performance for their methods while overseeing the actress' 2010 DUI case!
According to newly filed legal documents, the oversight panel was none too pleased with Miss Revel for meeting alone with Robert Shapiro, who was briefly acting as Lohan's defense attorney, as well as Fox's decision to deny her bail on a minor charge!
Luckily for them, the punishment

The executive director of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights is in damage control mode after Star magazine quoted him in their Kardashian Sweatshop Scandal article.
Charles Kernaghan says the gossip rag took his quotes out of context and doesn't have any proof the factories producing K-Dash by Kardashian, the Kris Jenner Kollection and ShoeDazzle shoes are violating child labor laws or human rights.
Since the news broke this morning, Kris Jenner has denied the allegations insisting the factories are "strictly policed".
ShoeDazzle owner Robert Shapiro echoed the momager's statement, adding he and his team have "invested tons of time, energy and money to ensure the factories are operating in good standard".
So…how long until they file a defamation lawsuit???

Although he was reported to be a guest on Larry King Live, we're not sure what Robert Shapiro is going to talk about!
Lindsay Lohan's former lawyer has been ordered by Judge Marsha Revel not to discuss the actress' case.
Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers said:
"I was concerned that Mr. Shapiro would talk about things that he had access to as he represented to the court that he was Ms. Lohan's attorney, but he no longer is. There are private matters in her file that need to remain confidential for her privacy, and I didn't want him to divulge any of that information publicly. The court ordered that he was not to discuss anything about Lindsay's case."
Shawn Chapman Holley is now Lindsay's attorney, although she never signed a substitution of attorney form.
We hope it works out for her! LiLo needs all the help she can get.

Well that's no fun!
Judge Marsha Revel has issued some restrictions for when Lindsay Lohan shows up to court tomorrow, which means we won't get to see all the action!
The cameras MUST stop rolling when Judge Revel announces Linds is remanded and the bailiff takes her in to custody, no one can photograph Lindsay when she's being handcuffed and photos can ONLY be taken when she's at the counsel table.
As for her lawyer Robert Shapiro, he says that he will be helping La Loca, but she will have to serve her prison sentence. He explains:
“I have agreed to represent Ms. Lohan on the condition that she complies with all of the terms of her probation, including a requirement of jail time that was imposed by Judge Marsha Revel.
"Ms. Lohan is suffering from a disease that I am all too familiar with. Hopefully, I can be of assistance to Ms. Lohan and Judge Revel in implementing a treatment approach recommended by medical professionals for Ms. Lohan’s long term recovery and sobriety.”
We shall see!

It has just been confirmed that Lindsay Lohan has officially hired Robert Shapiro as her new lawyer.
And it looks like someones going to be rocking a bad ass orange jumper come this Tuesday.
Shapiro said he has only "agreed to represent Ms. Lohan on the condition that she complies with all the terms of her probation, including a requirement of jail time that was imposed by Judge Marsha Revel."
He must be crazay to represent La Loca but then again he's represented OJ Simpson, so we're pretty sure he knows what he's getting in to.
Countdown is at t-minus 4 days til she enters the slammer.
We won't believe it until we see it.

Despite the fact that Lindsay Lohan has the opportunity to check into jail early, which would avoid a media circus, Lindsanity is refusing to show up even one minute early.
The delusional actress is said to be so "freaked out" to be behind bars and away from
drugs booze home, she is willing to "wait to the last minute possible" because she "has no desire at all to go to jail early."
Meanwhile, Lindsay's new lawyer Robert Shapiro has yet to file legal documents in Judge Marsha Revel's court saying he's her new lawyer.
Time is running out, Linds!!
T-minus 4 days until the big day!

We believe this too!
Lindsay Lohan's new lawyer Robert Shapiro wants to make a bid to keep his client out of jail, but District Attorney Danette Meyers says it's not going to work! She explains:
"It's a really a moot point to ask Judge Revel to send Ms. Lohan to rehab only as Judge Revel has already sentenced her. Ms. Lohan is going to jail… Judge Revel could have sentenced her to more time behind bars, but she didn't.
"The only issue to be decided is what rehabilitation facility Ms. Lohan will be sent to after she serves her jail time.”
And Meyers also says she will be there personally when Lindsanity turns herself in on Tuesday!
We didn't think La Loca would get out of this one!
